Indigenous rights; declaration adopted at the UN General Assembly, plus some video clips
The United Nations General Assembly adopted the declaration of the rights of indigenous peoples. The votes were 143 in favour, 4 against. The 4 countries against the declaration were predictably Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United States, long opposed to the declaration in its current form. A short update describes this. In addition, some video clips were added. One from a representative of the Inuit in the Arctic region, another an interview with Evo Morales, president of Bolivia, and another with an Aboriginal elder. They all look at different aspects of indigenous people’s struggles.
